Lady Skyhawks won their volleyball game 3-0 against Centennial Bulldogs on Oct. 12. This game determined whether or not the Lady Skyhawks host the first playoff game. 

The girls had lost their previous matchup against Centennial on Sept. 19, 3-2. 

Volleyball manager and senior Liam Monroe says there has been a lot of improvement between this summer and this particular game. Varsity Coach Justin Henwood also agrees that the team has made great improvement. 

The Lady Hawks were also able to put up a strong fight against Bishop Gorman on Oct. 6,  although they lost that game 0-3.

“The girls are able to come together during games no matter the outcome,” Monroe said.

Brooke Kramer (#11) and Roxy Christensen (#7)  make multiple winning plays throughout the night by hitting and blocking. 

Kramer and Christensen are two of our senior starters and tri-athletes who play volleyball, flag football and track.

The majority of the student section came prepared for our theme by wearing all black, including our Lady Skyhawks playing in their black jerseys with grey lettering. 

The student section gave the girls extra energy by chanting and making noise whenever our Lady Hawks made a good play. 

“This is a tight group that have pushed each other every practice and continue to find ways to inspire both teammates and fans by their performances,” Coach Henwood said. 

On Oct. 18, the Skyhawks also beat Shadow Ridge High School 3-1.
